NO government database of people is a good idea.
The feds may as well make us each register our names in some Conservative tracking book, and make us wear special armbands while we are out in public.
Sources claim that this database will be used to assist in gathering evidence against the roughly 500 people indicted on charges relating to the January 6th protests, but we all know it never stops there.
Government programs and initiatives have this nasty habit of growing completely out of control.
Bureaucrats and whole slew of deep state officials now control many aspects of our lives, why?
Because someone, somewhere gave them their start in public service. “Never let a good crisis go to waste” is the anthem of these deep state officials, and you can be sure they will use that same exact mindset here.
My feeling is that this database will expand over time, just wait for it……
Take a look at this first tweet, this type of attitude is exactly why these things tend to spiral out of control:
Let's record the tweets of every political activist and influencer who is tweeting against a January 6th commission. Let's put their names and information into a database. Under the Patriot Act, they are supporting terrorism, and they should be monitored.

The DOJ plans to pay $6.1 million to Deloitte to create a massive database of videos, photographs, documents and social media posts related to the Jan 6 Capitol riot as part of the process of collecting relevant evidence,

Politico broke the story:
Prosecutors are trying to organize thousands of hours of body-worn camera footage, closed-circuit surveillance camera footage, more than a million social media videos, data from phones and email accounts, and the responses to more than 6,000 grand jury subpoenas, according to a court filing Thursday.
“Following the Capitol Breach, the United States recognized that due to the nature and volume of materials being collected, the government would require the use of an outside contractor who could provide litigation technology support services to include highly technical and specialized data and document processing and review capabilities,” Assistant U.S. Attorneys Nadia Moore and William Dreher wrote in their submission.
“The government is working to provide an unprecedented amount of materials in the most comprehensive and usable format to defense counsel,” Moore and Dreher said.
all I heard was…

Newsmax had more to add:
The DOJ has said the Capitol attack investigation is the largest criminal probe in U.S. history.
The amount of evidence grows daily, prosecutors have said, as phones, hard drives, and other devices are obtained from newly arrested defendants.
Neither the DOJ nor a Deloitte representative has responded with comment to Politico.
The Justice Department database is just one of several being established in connection with the Capitol investigation. The Federal Public Defender office in Washington, D.C., also is considering hiring a contractor to help with the massive amount of evidence, according to the same court filing.
